Description from the packaging.

A picture paints a thousand words. The Graphics Studio allows you to paint with 4,096 individual colors. You can select any two colors from your palette and the Graphics Studio will automatically product the spectrum of colors between them. Fill any bounded area with a selected color or pattern. Done working on your castle? Print it out or save it to disk.

To create this beautiful cougar you may want to take a "pixel-by-pixel" approach. The "zoom" feature provides four levels of magnification for easy editing and detail work. While you're working on the magnified portion of the screen, the background displays the full size image. Need more room to work? Scroll up or down screen for another full page to paint on. Make a mistake? No problem. Grab the "adjustable eraser" that can be made into any size for cleaning large or small areas.

The Graphics Studio provides an easy-to-access "toolbox" for many of its powerful features. Select the "color cycling" tool to animate your picture or another tool to create text. There are tools to draw lines, boxes, ellipses, circles and polygons. Maybe you'd like to draw freehand? Just click-on the brush icon and sketch with a pencil or design a custom brush. You can even activate "X-Y" coordinates for precision work.

How were all of those leaves drawn with such uniformity? The Graphics Studio allows you to capture any image that you've created and replicate it over and over again. Is the scale correct? The "scale block" gives you the freedom to alter the size of any object on the screen. Make the cougar larger. Make the leaves smaller. Experiment until you achieve the perfect balance of size, shape and color.

The Graphics Studio gives you the ability to add depth and dimension, drop shadows and shading all with the touch of a button. Use the custom "airbrush" to create a smooth transition between colors. Not satisfied with the position of the chalice? The move it, flip it, rotate it or resize it. You can even remove the chalice from the painting and store it on a spare screen.

The Graphics Studio:
The Canvas of Creativity for Your Computer.

Powerful and easy to use. Accolade's Graphics Studio combines the sophistication of an advanced paint program with the simplicity of an artist's brush.

You don't have to be a programmer to understand it. You don't have to be a Rembrandt to use it. Yet, the Graphics Studio gives you the ability to render everything from complex business graphics to magnificent works of art - all on the canvas of your personal computer.

The Graphics Studio allows you to spend less time "computing" and more time creating. And doesn't that sound like a lot more fun?
